French Toast with Ricotta & Maple Syrup
Images and recipe taken from Stay for Breakfast
Light, fluffy, and fresh from the pan is how french toast should be served. Some say the tasty treat only as good as its toppings; others that it’s only as good as the bread. Find out for yourself with the following recipe from our new book Stay for Breakfast. The recipe is fairly easy to follow, and will take around 10 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to cook. Offered in both English and in German, Stay for Breakfast presents breakfast ideas for every occasion.
1 cup (250 ml) milk
Pinch of sea salt
1⁄4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tbsp. vanilla sugar
6–8 thick slices of bread (e.g. sourdough wheat bread)
Butter for frying
1⁄2 cup (100 g) ricotta cheese
Fresh fruit (e.g. blueberries, strawberries, peaches)
Whisk together the eggs, milk, and spices in a baking dish or shallow bowl until fully combined and fluffy.
Heat the frying pan over medium heat and add a tablespoon of butter.
Separately place each slice of bread into the egg mixture, give it a good soak on each side, and place directly into the frying pan.
Cook for approximately five minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove the toast from the frying pan, and allow to cool for a couple of minutes. Serve with a dollop of ricotta, maple syrup, and plenty of fresh fruit on the side. Bon Appetit!
